2015 Chrysler 200 Air Box
Loosen Counterclockwise
1st Screw Removed
This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the second generation 2015, 2016 and 2017 Chrysler 200 sedan in cleaning or changing the engine air filter element for the Tigershark MultiAir 2 SOHC 2.4 liter inline four cylinder motor. (The procedure should be the same or very similar for models with the Pentastar 3.6L V6 engine.)

Owners of other Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, RAM or Fiat vehicles such as the 300, Pacifica, Town & Country, Avenger, Charger, Challenger, Journey, Dart, Durango, Magnum, Grand Caravan, Fiat 500, Fiat 124 Spider, Grand Cherokee, Renegade, Wrangler, Compass, Liberty, Patriot, ProMaster, 1500 and C/V Tradesman minivan may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

A few compatible replacement air filters for the 2.4L I4 engine with their part numbers are as follows: EcoGard XA10394, Premium Guard PA8164, K&N 33-5025, Fram CA11948, Mopar 68157194AB and Pentius PAB11948.

The only tool needed to access and change the engine air filter element is a Phillips head screwdriver (or an 8mm socket with an extension bar and a 1/4" drive ratchet).

Loosen Front Left Screw
Loosen Middle Left Screw
3 Screws Removed
The first two steps are to open the hood and then move to the left (passenger) side of the engine bay.

The engine air filter box is located just behind the passenger side headlight assembly and in front of the coolant overflow tank.

Remove the three screws on the left side of the engine air box cover by turning them counterclockwise with a Phillips head screwdriver or an 8mm socket with an extension bar and a 1/4" drive ratchet.

Set the three screws aside in a safe place.

3 Tabs & Slots - Right Side
Pull Off Air Box Cover

Lift the top half of the air box and slide it to the left to disengage the three tabs on the right side from their slots on the bottom half of the air box.
Remove Old Engine Filter
Clean With Vacuum
Clean Out Bottom Half


Pull the old air filter out of the bottom half of the air box.

Inspect both sides of the old air filter.

If the old filter is dark grey or black and clogged with dirt, dust, sand, leaves, insects, hair, pollen, soot, twigs and other debris, it should be replaced with a new element.

I usually buy the Fram CA11948 engine air filter.

If you would like to have the OEM (original equipment manufacturer) part, buy the Mopar 68157194AB filter.

If the old filter is relatively clean, just tap out the large debris and remove any fine dust with a vacuum cleaner.

If your vacuum cleaner has a crevice attachment, clean out any sand or debris in the bottom half of the air box.

Install New Air Filter
New Air Filter Installed
Slide 3 Tabs In Slots
Lower the new filter in to the bottom half of the air box with the pleats facing down and the rubber gasket facing up towards you.

Lower the air box cover and line up the three tabs with their corresponding slots on the right (driver) side of the bottom half of the air box.

Slide the three tabs in to their slots and close the air box cover.

Replace Three Screws
Tighten Clockwise
Engine Air Filter Replaced
Replace the three screws by tightening them in the clockwise direction with the Phillips head screwdriver.

If you have trouble re-inserting the screw at the front left corner of the box, try loosely attaching the screw to your screwdriver with some painter's tape.

Try to avoid over tightening the three screws to prevent from cracking the plastic air box housing.

Make sure that the two halves of the air box are flush together with no part of the new filter visible at the edges.
